Campground Reviews

Jun 11, 2014
We love the cabins by the water. Very relaxing and away from the crowds. The area does need to get a little painting and beautification to make it a bit more appealing and not like it is a work in progress. This is the beginning of summer and it should look nicer. Staff was very friendly. Really enjoyed our stay. Back parking lot area could be a bit better. An old boat and truck took up much space

There was only one restroom stall available for the men, everything else was under construction. Would like to see some sort of temp facility or a reduction of price due to inconvience. Great place to stay but restroom set up bad

Over all we had a pleasant stay but this KOA is the most expensive campground on the island. Would rather have stayed somewhere else but all the cheaper campgrounds were full. Over all nice stay but the new WIFI system was terrible and barely worked.

Stay was good except for site. We had a 40 ft fifth wheel and almost could not get out. Made for a sleepless nite before we left.

Sites were horrible!! Very small no grass!! We brought food to cook out but there was no grill!!! We had to go buy a grill to cook our food. The staff was not friendly at all! I wouldn't recomend it to anyone!!

Let me start with the staff is great! But don't take the no sewer sites they are lit all night by halogen lights, there are no BBQ pits at the sites and some genius decided to remodel the main bathrooms on a holiday weekend leaving only one toilet for all the men to share. Over all this is the worst KOA I've stayed at in my near 40 years of camping.

Only issue was the closure of the men's facilities

Instead of being a vacation, I waisted time moving from cabin to cabin because there were problems with tv. Second waterfront cabin was worse, tv not working and water all over the bedroom because of air condition leaks water inside cabin. Spend time cleaning up mess and changing jar of water every time it would get full. Also that sewer smell outside all day long. Could not even cook outside.

The facilities are very clean and the staff are super friendly. It was our second year visiting South Padre KOA and we will go again.

Will return, hosts were great with information and expertise

For the price, felt there should have been cement pads instead of chunky gravel at the sites. And trees or bushes - something to relieve the gravel. Showers needed benches or at least shelves.

The cabins were located on the water but the smell from the gulf was so severe we could not even breathe the air outside the cabin. We were told the smell is from the mangroves, but they should have told us about this prior to booking. It is very deceiving to see all the stuff on the web but actually it was one worst experiences we have had on any beach properties.

Loved staying at the lodges. Hopefully we can stay a little longer on our next trip. We had 6 families stay at the KOA on this trip. We all had a great time.

Nice place, but overpriced. Would chose country park on the beach after checking it out. Pier 19 good

Pool needs cleaning. Need better WiFi.

As always the staff make the stay so much more fun. We love it.

The couple at the check in we're not friendly. The man was worst. The women's restroom finally opened on Friday but the stated the water heater was not. It turned out they just needed to turn the knob to turn the water heater on. We addressed concerns about men walking in the women's restroom because the mens restroom was not. They didn't do anything about it or so no concern.

We had a great stay, and the staff was as always very friendly and helpful. The park can use a little more traffic control,there are guest that drive too fast. The only other issue was that the bathroom on the east side of the park was very dirty which is very uncommon

We stayed in the lodge KLL which was nice except for the bunk bed room. It was very hot in there since there were no vents. We had all the air conditioners on but that room was so hot that we had to get our kids out of there.

Disappointed that the main restrooms and showers were still under construction for Memorial day weekend.
May 27, 2014
Very clean and kept. Premium pull throughs were rather cramped for space but thats what you may expect for a resort location. Loud neighbors and empty beer bottles littered our bumpers when we awoke in the morning. It was Memorial Day weekend so I suppose you can expect that as well. Great beaches with public access. Go early to get unticketed parking ;)

Was really disappointed in the condition of pool and lack of safety. We were also disappointed in the lack of condition in the new space It was very difficult to park and get the truck out from the trailer. People blocked the only road to reconnect the trailer.

Loved the area & Pier 19 Restaurant & Bar attached. Best KOA we've stayed at. Such friendly & helpful staff. One critique: get small gravel for RV sites, not the "granite rock" that is hard to walk on, let alone leveling a camper on.

Very nice!

quiet times not enforced. no sign of anyone in the park to enforce the rules. when truck was blocking my site, staff just said ''oh." Staff seems intimated by the summer regulars. Pay for 6 , get 7th free should have also allowed paying for the KOA member rate, expecially since the bathrooms were under construction. only ONE toilet for the men for the entire park and no activities in May.

Neighbors partied until 3 am. Their kids kept running across our porch and throwing rocks despite numerous requests to stop. Not KOAs fault but this made our experience a dreadful one...
May 19, 2014
The grounds are improving a lot. New Wi-Fi, remodeling main bathrooms, better security guards, new cable boxes, etc. However, there's only one small bathroom facility on the eastside of the park till remodeling done in June or July, 2014. Huge inconvenience if you rely on park bathrooms. Still need more security guards bc there's some overcrowding of lots with fishing boats, vehicles, kids, etc.

Clean and friendly environment

It was very quiet, clean and neat. Lots of things to enjoy. Would have liked to have been told that the bathroom was under repair before we set up our camper. I had called the day before we arrived and would have requested a closer site.

This KOA is very clean and friendly. The owners are very helpful and will do anything to make you happy. I would recommend this camp to anyone. Loved it.
